    Offseason

    Regular season

    On June 28, 1997, the Phillies played the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking professional baseball's color-line, the Braves hosted a Turn Back the Clock game. The Braves wore 1938 Atlanta Black Crackers home uniforms and the Phillies wore 1938 Philadelphia Stars road uniforms. In 1938, the Black Crackers had played in the Negro American League and the Stars in the Negro National League.[5]

    J. D. Drew

    Phillies' first round draft pick J. D. Drew and his agent Scott Boras elected not to sign with the Phillies, sticking to their guarantee that they would not sign for less than $10 million. The Phillies had no plan to pay an unproven player this amount of money, and despite Boras' warnings, drafted Drew nonetheless. Consequently, Drew ended up playing for the St. Paul Saints of the independent Northern League.

    Season standings

    The Phillies played extremely poorly in the first 100 games of the season, going 30-70, including a 4-22 stretch in the month of June. The team made a miraculous comeback in the last 62 games, going 38-24, the best of any team in the National League during that span. It was not enough, however, to get them out of last place.
